California Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle accidents do not happen as often as other types of crashes. However, they are usually more dangerous and deadly than car accidents and collisions. A bicyclist has no protection from the impact of a crash and is likely to be seriously injured when they are struck by a vehicle.

The cause of every crash must be carefully investigated. In many instances, the accident could have been prevented through ordinary care and caution. A majority of accidents are caused by negligence including speeding, reckless driving, impairment, and distraction. Unfortunately, innocent victims are often affected.

Under California’s injury laws, accident victims or their families could be entitled to compensation following a crash. Every case must be individually analyzed to determine the steps that need to be taken. However, your case should always be examined by an experienced attorney.
